Massage as Tissue Healer

Many people think going to get a massage is just some luxury that only offers relaxation and no real health benefits. However, this isn’t the case. In fact, it can actually heal your body in a variety of ways, offering benefits to major organ systems and allowing you to feel your best.

When a masseuse uses a variety of strokes all along your skin, you experience a different kind of blood flow, increased oxygen flow, and even lymph congestion can be relieved. After several sessions, you should start to see a significant improvement to your overall health.

What can getting a massage on a regular basis do for your body specifically, you may be wondering? Let’s take a look at a few examples.

You know that having the knots and tension massaged out of your muscles leads to relaxation, but can also provide stress relief and the alleviation of anxiety symptoms. It can reduce blood pressure, not just while undergoing treatment, but rather for the long-term. It can improve circulation and allow you to get better sleep at night. If you suffer from pain frequently, it can also provide relief in that regard as well.

There’s even evidence that regular sessions will allow you to experience an improved immune system. Those who undergo chemotherapy and other cancer treatments report an improved response to the treatments when they are coupled with stress relieving efforts like this.

We already mentioned that it can help with pain, but did you know it can actually be used as a treatment for tension headaches? In fact, a regular massage treatment can relieve tension headache symptoms so that you don’t even need to take analgesics anymore. Yes, you read that correctly: you can actually stop taking pain relievers thanks to regular massage therapy sessions. That’s how effective it is at relieving knots and pain in the body.

People dismiss the effect stress has on the body and mind as not a big deal but it’s actually a very big deal. Stress and anxiety can cause you to lose sleep, resulting in poor concentration, lack of energy, and poor health. Over time, stress can actually cause you to become ill. This is why setting aside time for treatments is so important. You owe it to yourself to feel good and be happy and getting a massage can do that and so much more. It’s not just about luxury. It’s about your health.
